You're The One That I Want

Right now, all I want to wear is tights. So it's a good thing I purchased some wet look tights from Topshop in Malaysia.
When i put them on the other day, Mother said I looked like Olivia Newton John in her Grease days. I’m not entirely sure if that’s a good thing or not.

This inbreeding of ideas is intolerable

"Friendship improves happiness
And abates misery by doubling
Our joy and dividing our grief"

-Joseph Addison

I’m re-kindling an old friendship. I’m gaining new friendships. Friends that left the school have returned back.
But along with all these new wonderful things, it feels like I’m loosing other, older friendships. Question now going through my head is weather or not to let them go or to chase after them. I don’t want them to go, but it feels like they’ve already moved on and that the replacement process has already begun.

Life is absolutely sweet. I am having such a blast so far this year, But I keep thinking that things could be that little bit better.

Take The World Upon Your Shoulders

I’m going down to spotlight to get some plush letters and sewing this motto onto the back of an 80 cent t-shirt athletic hoodie.
Finding a thrift store, or in my case a thrift marquee, when I went to Malaysia was probably was one of the highlights of my trip. As sad as it sounds, I almost cried with excitement. I ended up leaving with two cute t-shirts, the hooded athletic t-shirt, and two jackets. One of the jackets I purchased was an old, aqua coloured bomber jacket that you see the “Jocks” wearing in those American teen movies.
Total price of purchase of all items: $12 AUS. As if anyone wouldn’t be almost crying with happiness.

I'm no longer an ordinary man

On occasion I have bought male clothing because I find that they always happen to have these amazing designs that you never see on any female clothing. Before Christmas I made a purchase (pictured bellow) that I love. This Sushi Radio singlet top is one of a collection. Only 40 are made and distributed to boutique shops around Melbourne. When I saw this singlet it automatically made me feel like it had to hang nicely on a clothes hanger inside my over crowded wardrobe. The text “Be Somebody” written on the bottom of the shirt makes me think every time I see it and put it on. Personally I don’t take it to mean to become someone famous or well known. It makes me think about my "ideal" self. The girl I want to be. I see her sometimes, she scares and surprises those around her and herself. She loves when it happens.
Why I can't convince her to stay is still a mystery and will be solved sometime in the future.

Spend the whole night dancing

The stars were visible on that warm Friday night that just past. My friend and I headed down to the beach in Anglesea to walk around on the sand and splash in the tide. We could hardly see the sand or water in front of us as the only light that was visible was coming from above the cliff. After a few minutes of walking I turned around and realized that with every step we took, where our foot had briefly landed, would light up like stars. The only reasonable explanation we could come up with was that they were sand worms. But why they lit up when we set foot on them was a mystery. We ran along the beach, jumping and spinning to see the trail of stars we had left behind. It felt as if we were walking on the night sky that was blazing above us. The sensation was absolutely un-real.
It’s moments like those where you don’t expect nature to be explained, you just want to soak in every second of enjoyment.
